She refuses the potty. Yells NO! At volumes that we never knew she had. Comes over and scratches me randomly, slaps, kicks. Pees on the couch with a smile on her face. Only eats yogurt, fruit and candy if she cons me into it. Constantly takes bites or sips and spits it out all over the floor. Throws stuff all over the house.
I will calmly get to her eye level and explain why what she did is wrong or hurtful but it doesn't seem to sink in. We don't hit or do time out. Sometimes we do put her in another room and talk to her.
I'm at my wits end. This is not just when she's tired/hungry. This is all day. We moved right at the same time and were stressed. I fear her watching my DH and I fight is showing her this is acceptable behavior. DH is a hot head and explosive and we are working on that. He quite frequently ignores my suggestions and isn't 100% on board with AP or GD.
I try and stay calm but it's hard lately. I think her 2yo molars are coming in but when I check they haven't broken through. She had a rapid explosion in communication from jibberish to full on sentences! In like 2 months.
I need fresh perspective. What is acceptable for a kiddo this age? Is it just the resistant 2yo phase? Help!
